Puerto Ricans Travelling on Cruise Ship Call for Resignation of Governor

Puerto Ricans travelling on the Royal Caribbean Freedom of the Seas cruise ship staged a demonstration on July 23, calling for the resignation of Governor Ricardo Rossello.

Local news outlet El Nuevo Dia published an unconfirmed report saying that “Rossello’s resignation [was] imminent”.

Protests against Rosello began following the release of hundreds of private Telegram chats.

The chats, between Rossello and 11 top aides and cabinet members, contained homophobic and misogynistic messages, and came amid a corruption scandal.

Puerto Rico’s Center for Investigative Journalism reported on July 17 that a “multi-million dollar corruption network” was allegedly known about by Rossello and involved some of his closest aides.
